Before the season finale in the 2nd Bundesliga and a possible promotion of Hamburger SV, striker Robert Glatzel expressly praised his coach Tim Walter. “He is extremely important for the group – and also for me personally,” said the 28-year-old in an interview with “Sport Bild” (Wednesday). Walter stands by everyone, “even if things don’t go as well as I did at the beginning of the season”.

Before the season finale in the 2nd Bundesliga and a possible promotion of Hamburger SV, striker Robert Glatzel expressly praised his coach Tim Walter. “He is extremely important for the group – and also for me personally,” said the 28-year-old in an interview with “Sport Bild” (Wednesday). Walter stands by everyone, “even if things don’t go as well as I did at the beginning of the season”.

For Glatzel, the coach is a “totally honest guy”. With his management style, he “helped the team and me a lot. The same applies to his style of play, »said the striker. “Playing this kind of football is a lot of fun.”

After four consecutive victories in the 2nd division, HSV has made it to the relegation spot after being written off beforehand. In the game on Sunday (3:30 p.m. / Sky) at Hansa Rostock, Hamburg still have the chance to achieve direct promotion if second-placed Werder Bremen lose their game against Jahn Regensburg.

According to Glatzel, the basis for the upswing was laid by negative experiences. In the 3-1 defeat in the DFB Cup semi-final against SC Freiburg on April 19, the team realized “what can be possible with the fans, because our stadium was packed and the atmosphere was unique”.

In addition, the weak games at Fortuna Düsseldorf (19.3./1: 1) and at Holstein Kiel (10.4./0: 1) were also decisive. “There’s no point in praising everything internally,” said Glatzel, who has already scored 21 goals this season. “You have to analyze, sometimes express your opinion, discuss openly – we did that together as a team with the coaches.” After the games in Düsseldorf and Kiel it was clear: “If we continue like this, it will be difficult.”
